Police Intercept Man at Njuguna Ndungu Pre-Budget Photo Shoot: “People are Suffering”

Police officers removed a man who tried to disrupt a photo session featuring Treasury Cabinet Secretary Professor Njuguna Ndung’u at the National Assembly.

The man, identified as Julius Kamau, dashed towards the podium before being apprehended by police.

Kamau’s actions mirrored the online discontent among Kenyans rallying under the #RejectFinanceBill2024 hashtag to voice their dissatisfaction with the proposed legislation.

In response, Kenyans devised a campaign urging Members of Parliament to reject the Finance Bill 2024, arguing its provisions were burdensome.

Some shared contact details of lawmakers, encouraging online users to inundate them with messages and calls urging a “NO” vote on the contentious bill.

Julius Kamau is no stranger to public activism, having been previously arrested at public gatherings.

He gained attention in June 2022 for disrupting a meeting between the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and presidential candidates in Nairobi.

During the incident, Kamau interrupted former IEBC Chairperson Wafula Chebukati’s session with Martha Karua, the running mate of the Azimio la Umoja coalition.

Brandishing a banner, Kamau demanded a private audience with Chebukati before being swiftly escorted out by security.

In another episode, he was arrested after chaining himself to a post during protests in Nairobi’s Central Business District.

Accusing the government of neglecting its citizens and exacerbating poverty, Kamau denounced what he termed as modern-day slavery.

“People are suffering. People are dying. How is the government addressing this inefficiency?” Kamau questioned.

Beyond his activism, Kamau earns a living as a street vendor selling secondhand clothes and shoes in Nairobi’s Central Business District, actively engaging in civic matters.
